It was painfully obvious that Man City did not want to give Liverpool a guard of honour tonight, but it would’ve been classy if they had done it properly.
Instead we were treated to a half hearted affair, with the City players giving up and running away before the Liverpool players had properly walked through it:

That was always going to get the fans talking, and it looks like plenty of people noticed it:
Half hearted guard of honour that ?

Is it me or the guard of honour was very impassionate? #MCILIV

Liverpool get called classless yet City couldn't even give a decent guard of honour, walking off before the whole team was on the pitch #MCILIV

That was a pretty graceless guard of honour, City. Disrespectful of worthy Champions. I’m not a Liverpool fan but I know great winners when I see them #COYI

Man City have a chance to regain some honour with a win tonight, but that will go down as one of the poorest and lacking-in-class guard of honours of all time.
